Sarah (Sadie) Christian Talmage Patten by Grandson Sterling Patten

Contributor: SouthPawPhilly Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Memories of Sarah Christian Talmage Patten By Sterling Patten - Grandson Sarah Christian Talmage was born December 8, 1865 in Hungerford, Berkshire, England to James Joyce and Susanna Preater Talmage. She was about eight years of age when the family came to Provo, Utah. She became a teacher in the Spencer School and continued to teach for a short time following her marriage to William Wallace Patten. They were the parents of eight children: Floyd, Aretta, Mable, Lila, Vera, Lionel, Alta, and Wallace James. In the early 1920’s the Patten family moved to Sterling, Idaho. Here they raised sugar beets which were processed in an Idaho sugar factory, and later they raised Lucerne seed. Sadie was a great seamstress, and was always very involved in the Relief Society program of the Church. She also had a great sense of humor. Sterling recalls one night after aunts, uncles and cousins were all bedded down - some on the floor of the small home, seeing his Grandma feeling her way in the dark toward the kitchen by outstretching her arms and hands in front of her so as not to bump into anything. Sterling watched her walk straight into something and bump her nose. Her quick witted comment to that situation was, “Well, this is the first time I ever knew my nose was longer than my arms.” After Sadie had been married sometime and while they were still living in Idaho, her husband came home one afternoon. He had been looking at farm equipment in Blackfoot or Pocatello. She commented on the way he looked and suggested she fix a cup of tea as a remedy for his tired condition. When she brought the tea back from the kitchen she found her husband lying on the sofa, dead from a heart attack. This was a very great shock to her and the family. His body was taken back to Provo for burial. She went back to Idaho with the boys, but Lionel wasn’t interested in the farm, and Wallace was too young, so they eventually sold out and went back to Provo. She began staying with the families of her children. Sterling remembers Grandma dancing over the broomstick although she was on the heavy side. The children tried to accomplish this same fete, but failed. When Albert Talmage’s wife Sarah died, Sadie went to live with her brother Albert and helped him print the Messenger to the Sightless. She lived with him from six to eight years. Thora and Sterling could always count on a birthday gift from Grandma Patten. She never forgot. Sarah T. Patten died on the 25th of November, 1942. This was the same day Sterling and Edna got married which caused them to spend an unusual honeymoon.

Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Sarah T. Patten was 18 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change.

Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.

His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
